Tetbury Town Council provides a selection of public play parks and recreational spaces within Tetbury

Open Spaces and Play Areas

Tetbury Town Council manages two play areas within Tetbury, they are located at Webb Road and Suffolk Close.

We hold a monthly inspection of these areas to make sure they are kept in the best condition, however, should you find something needing attention please contact us.

The Recreation Ground Play Area is managed by the Dolphins Hall Management Committee so if you find something that needs attention please contact chair@dolphinshalltetbury.co.uk.

Each year we complete a yearly safety inspection of both areas using an external examiner. If needed, we then devise a programme of repairs for the following few months.

If anyone would like to donate any time to helping us maintain these areas for the benefit of our children, please contact us. The areas are usually in need of painting, weeding etc and any help is greatly appreciated to ensure that the local spaces can be enjoyed by all.

Trees

Their application form can be found at Cotswold District Council or you can request a copy to be posted by calling: 01285 623000

To help CDC consider your application they may visit your tree(s). Appointments for such visits cannot usually be made. The local parish or town council and district councillor may also be consulted. 

If CDC has no objections to the works you will receive a decision notice to that effect. (No conditions, e.g. re-planting, can be placed on that decision.)

If CDC considers that the works would have a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the conservation area and that the tree(s) has significant public visual amenity, they will normally try to contact you to see if the notification can be amended.  

If an acceptable amendment cannot be agreed, a TPO will be served to protect the tree(s).

For more information on trees in conservation areas, please visit Cotswold District Councils website.  

If you are in any doubt regarding whether a tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order or a Conservation Area DO NOT CARRY OUT ANY WORKS until you’ve checked with Cotswold District Council as you could be heavily fined.
